Delhi and Gujarat will fight together against BJP, says Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi: In a clear indication that Gujarat was on AAP's electoral radar, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said the result of the Assembly polls in the western state next year could "surprise everyone" and that Delhi and Gujarat will now "fight together" against the BJP.

Kejriwal, who visited Gujarat twice in the recent past, claimed the people in the state are extremely "angry" against the BJP government led by Anandiben Patel and accused it of levelling "false charges" against members of the Patidar and Dalit communities.

"Gujarat is very very angry against Anandiben Patel n BJP. Next year, Guj election results cud surprise everyone. Anandiben is sending dalits and patidars to jail in false cases while Modiji is doing the same in Delhi. Delhi and Gujarat will now fight together (sic)," the AAP chief said in a series of tweets.

He alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "silence" on the assault on Dalits "proves" that these incidents had the blessings of the top leadership of BJP.

"PM Modi's continued silence on dalit attacks proves that these attacks are taking place with active support from top BJP leadership," he alleged in another tweet.

At his maiden 'Talk to AK' session last week, Kejriwal had said that AAP will surely contest polls in Gujarat provided people want the party to do so.

In Gujarat, Kejriwal dubbed the BJP "anti-Dalit" and accused the ruling BJP of "trampling" upon the depressed sections after meeting the Dalit victims who were thrashed by cow vigilantes for allegedly skinning a dead cow on 11 July.
